    I seem to recall in previous versions of StudioPress child themes, there was a line of code for the fonts, that pulled whatever it needed to pull from Google Fonts to import Google Fonts in.

    Now, I just see this:

    body {
    background-color: #fff;
    color: #777;
    font-family: ‘Lato’, sans-serif;
    font-weight: 300;
    line-height: 1.625;
    }

    So, Lato is a Google Font, but I don’t see anything related to “Google” in the style.css. So, can I just change ‘Lato’ to any other font that Google has online (e.g. ‘Roboto’) and then assume it’s automatically just going to change the font? Is it that easy?

    I did that once and thought it worked with one Google Font, but tried with another, and it didn’t seem to work.

    Any suggestions?

    Someone just linked to this post – but it seems more generic than specifically related to Genesis-powered sites:

    Some themes pull in their fonts using the functions file to enqueue the script; you may check there and see if the line you need to change shows up. :)

    Best,

    I’m using Enterprise Pro.

    Just wondering how to change fonts to any of the other Google Fonts.

    This link might be useful since it is from StudioPress Official Tips page http://www.studiopress.com/tips/google-web-fonts.htm
